Join us in Denver and be a part of the 2024 AAAS Annual Meeting program:
Scientific Sessions: Science and technology experts assemble in small multi-disciplinary panels to discuss research that advances Toward Science Without Walls. During these 60-minute sessions, a panel of three speakers give 10-minute presentations followed by audience questions and comments.
Lightning Talks: Early career researchers take the stage for ten minutes to discuss their STEM work.
Workshops: Workshops are aimed at individuals seeking careers in science and engineering. Workshops are instructional and interactive in nature and are markedly different from a scientific session. Workshops may have up to 3 presenters and will be 60 minutes in length.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science is guided by the following strategic goals:
- Advance scientific excellence and achievement
AAAS recognizes, inspires, and enables a robust research ecosystem that drives discovery and innovation and prepares future scientists and engineers.
- Foster equity and inclusion for scientific excellence
AAAS fosters the diverse, equitable, open, and inclusive scientific enterprise that is essential for scientific excellence.
- Build trust among scientists and communities
AAAS builds trust among scientists and engineers and broader communities and is a valued source of accurate scientific information that is foundational to countering misinformation.
- Catalyze progress where science meets policy
AAAS provides actionable evidence for public policy that serves society and promotes policies that enable quality science.
